Seventeen encore 'Follow Again' to visit Korea, Japan in March


Seventeen is set to hold encore shows in Korea and Japan from March, the boy band’s agency Pledis Entertainment said Monday.

The encore tour, titled “Seventeen Tour ‘Follow’ Again,” will begin at the Incheon Asiad Main Stadium on March 30 and 31. The band will be the first K-pop group to hold a solo concert at the stadium, according to its agency. The stadium has a capacity of almost 30,000.

The following concerts will take place in Japan at the Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka on May 18 and 19, then at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama on May 25 and 26.

Seventeen will be the second group to hold a solo concert at the Nissan Stadium, which holds up to around 70,000 people. Boy band TVXQ was the only band to perform solo before Seventeen, according to its agency.

The encore tour is an extension of Seventeen's world tour “Follow,” which ended on Jan. 21 in Macao.
